NYG: 4
Movement: Up 2
NFC East: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 4 Giants, No.11 Redskins, No. 23 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 2 Patriots, No. 3 Raiders, No. 4 Giants, No. 5 Chiefs
Comments: "At 8-3, barring a catastrophe, they should be a playoff team. They face a tough test this week at Pittsburgh." – Pete Prisco

NYG: 5
Movement: None
NFC East: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 5 Giants, No. 10 Redskins, No. 19 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 2 Patriots, No. 3 Raiders, No. 4 Seahawks, No. 5 Giants
Comments: "For all the firepower on that Giants' offense (including a top-three wideout in Odell Beckham Jr., Eli Manning and his two Super Bowl rings, Victor Cruz and a rookie in Sterling Shepard who is already one of the better slot receivers in the NFL), they just can't explode. Manning and Co. still haven't topped 30 points in any game this season. In fact, the offense got a big boost from the defense against the Browns on Sunday: Jason Pierre-Paul provided some instant O with his fumble (return) for a touchdown in the second half." – Elliot Harrison

NYG: 5
Movement: Up 2
NFC East: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 5 Giants, No. 11 Redskins, No. 18 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 2 Patriots, No. 3 Raiders, No. 4 Falcons, No. 5 Giants
Comments: "Somehow, the New York Football Giants are 8-3 despite seven of their wins coming by one score. It took a pick-six by Jason Pierre-Paul to break open the game against the Browns, which was much closer than it should have been. Eli Manning and the offense need to be more consistent, and the offensive line has to do a better job of protecting him in the pocket. The Giants are good, but they need a signature win." – Cameron DaSilva

NYG:  4
Movement: Up 2
NFC East: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 4 Giants, No. 13 Redskins, No. 24 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 2 Patriots, No. 3 Raiders, No. 4 Giants, No. 5 Chiefs
Comments: "It wasn't always easy against the Browns, a week after it was more difficult than necessary against the Bears. No matter. The Giants are winning and staying within striking distance of the Cowboys in the NFC East, with a December home game against Dallas still on the remaining schedule." – Mark Maske

NYG: 10
Movement: Down 4  
NFC East: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 10 Giants, No. 11 Redskins, No. 20 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 2 Raiders, No. 3 Patriots, No. 4 Seahawks, No. 5 Broncos
Comments: "According to Elias Sports Bureau research, the Giants have played the fourth-easiest schedule so far this season, so that six-game win streak (which featured wins against the Rams, Bears and Browns) might need to be taken with a grain of salt. The Steelers should provide a tougher test this weekend." – ESPN Staff

NYG: 8
Movement: Up 2
NFC East: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 8 Giants, No. 9 Redskins, No. 17 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 2 Seahawks, No. 3 Patriots, No. 4 Falcons, No. 5 Raiders
Comments: "Nice to see Jason Pierre-Paul rebound. Of his eight sacks since fireworks injury, 5.5 have occurred last two weeks, including three Sunday." – USA TODAY Staff

NYG:  10
Movement: None
NFC East: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 8 Redskins, No. 10 Giants, No. 22 Eagles
NFL Top 5: No. 1 Cowboys, No. 2 Patriots, No. 3 Raiders, No. 4 Chiefs, No. 5 Seahawks
Comments: "The Giants only have one game remaining against a team that is under .500, and that's a road game against the 5-6 Eagles. We'll see how good they are." – Frank Schwab
